Dress for Success Oregon
To empower womxn to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help womxn thrive in work and in life.
Bottom Line for Portland
As Covid-19 brought job losses to industries where womxn make up the majority of the workforce, our services have been critical in helping the womxn we support find and retain jobs that bring economic stability to their lives. Through virtual styling appointments, contactless clothing pickups, and online training programs for job-seekers, we will have provided more than 1,000 womxn with the tools they need to succeed this year. We believe Dress for Success is an investment in womxn’s potential and our community as a whole.
"As a single mom who is currently still supporting my daughter in virtual learning, there are things that I’m not able to do or afford to care for myself. It was so great to have an organization like Dress for Success Oregon to come along and fill the gap where it was needed at the right time."
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
After completing a 2-year DEI audit in 2019, Dress for Success Oregon remains committed to promoting and advancing DEI in our organizational culture and in our program activities. We strive always to provide greater access to our programs; to seek community and client feedback and adjust our programmatic work accordingly; and to provide trauma-informed support through an intersectional feminist and anti-racist lens. We also proudly serve all womxn-identifying and gender non-conforming individuals and continue to ensure that the clothing we offer reflects our commitment to supporting clients across the gender spectrum.
